Donald, great to see your comments as I had lost contact with you sometime after losing my fourth game of Conquest to that lady genius. My daughter still loves Conquest (calls it 'The Elephant-Ship Game'). Your new game at www.Grand-Conquest.de with Camels and Seige Engines looks very nice, but that page is in German. Do you have an English page? Best of luck to you ... I miss our e-mail chats. I look forward to hearing more about this new game of yours. Take care, Gary

Yes, yes, absolutely. Hm. I'd love to see these problems and I think others would too. So it takes an omniscient mind to solve some of them, does it? Well, I think perhaps Joe Joyce could do it then! :-)

I am in Duesseldorf. was at the Spiel Fair to introduce my new game, Grand Conquest with moats and drawbridges. It is now available in Germany. See: www.Grand-Conquest.de

This game also has three new pieces: Camels, catapults, and siege engines.

Happy Conquesting,

Donald Benge

Would anybody like to see some really hard (but very pretty) Quest-Chess problems? I have composed several hundred, ten of which only God and I know how to solve... and I'm not so sure about Him unless He was looking over my shoulder when I composed them. Donald Benge
